There are no words that can express how grateful and blessed he was to have family, special friends and his Conquistador Family, Joe was a compassionate, loving and caring man with an infectious smile. His famous word were “If I don’t have what you need in my shed… you don’t need it”.

    Joey as I knew him was a sweet kid. I am Joe, Randy and Tami’s cousin. We grew up together and he was always so level headed. I moved away and so did he so we never stayed in touch. I always will think of him as a warm soul and very kind. God be with you and all your loved ones on this time.
